Two books (soft back) are on the table today. Both are from talented designer Louisa Harding. Both are out-of-print, but available on Amazon and elsewhere as used books.
Although the designs in these lovely collections are really nice and beautifully designed and styled (especially the Magical World for young ladies), I’m making classifying these books in the Thumbs Down category. My ruthless streak continues!
Modern Classics (published in 2006) has over 20 designs and even after 8 years they are still wearable and easy to knit.
I did love a few of the designs. They would be ideal for anyone making classic sweaters that will be in style for many years to come.
The 2nd book, The Magical World According to Miss Millie (published in 2006) is a really fun and flirty collection of patterns. While the majority of the patterns are for little girls, there are 4 featured classic styles for little guys (look at the back cover). The sizing is for ages 3-10.
I love the thumbnail index that shows all 20 designs at a glance. Perfect for times when you are searching for a certain style.
Love, love the pretty shades, bohemian styling and incredible photography.
